One of the things I love about being an aesthetician is experimenting on my own skin.
My most recent experiment was a peel series that I read about in one of my professional magazines. This series promised improvements in:
- the look of lines and wrinkles
- hyper-pigmented spots
- clogged pores
- pore appearance
- skin color eveness
- skin smoothness and texture.
So I gave it a go and I was delighted with the results. While I will always have the sunspots of my youth, (unless I succumb to laser treatments) they were truly lighter than they were at the start. I also noticed a more vibrant glow to my skin. Most noticeable was the smoothness and texture of my skin. I really noticed this because make-up slid on smoothly and there wasn’t so much caking in skin creases.
A peel series requires some commitment on your part. For two weeks prior to the series, you need to use an 8-10 percent AHA home care serum ( included in this service) and 30 SPF sunscreen. ( I use a BB cream that has 30 SPF in it already.) After the two weeks, you receive six express facials every 3-4 days. We will also need to check for any contraindications to having the series.
An express facial lasts 30 min and includes two short massages. Normally they cost $50, but for the series you will get them for $40. Include the AHA prep serum, and you can get this treatment for $250 rather than $330, . Start now and have glowing skin for the holidays. Or give it as a special gift for the holidays.
